I wanted a Netbook for casual use. Mainly for emails, messaging, browsing the internet and for the occasional video watching. The Asus EEE does it all and does it well. Quick enough speed, well lit monitor, average sound. It does what I want it to do with little or no problems

I have had a few issues with mine however. Every once in a while, my keyboard locks up and doesn't accept any new characters. I'm forced to shutdown and reboot the PC at which point it resumes normal use. I've also noticed that some of my "F" keys no longer work. I could probably take it in and have it serviced, but it doesn't interfere with my use, so I don't even really notice it that much.

If you're looking for something small for email, browsing, chatting and/or moderate Word Processing, I highly recommend the Asus EEE. It gets the job done

I bought this netbook for my son for college (no DVD so limited to no gaming). I ended up trading him for my (ugh!) Compaq Vista notebook that has a slightly stronger wi-fi card. I hated the fact that Vista required me to learn all new versions of my software. Microsoft really f***ed up there. OK I didn't expect much from this $249 computer, BUT I WAS WRONG. Running in full screen mode much of the time I really had little adjustment to make. It's running all of my XP software including Photoshop, MSOffice, that I am a "power-user" on and hated to give up for Vista pointless versions. There isn't a software yet that I haven't been able to load and run as well if not better than other machines with DVDs. I keep all my software setup files on a "setup" external drive anyway for ease of restoration purposes so the lack of DVD is nothing. The startup and close-down time is remarkable compared to all the other computers I have ever used. Plus, I download movies from Netflix really well. I use it for email and all things online, plus word processing, spreadsheets, database, raw image processing, quick jpg image processing and upload, embroidery digitizing and the list goes on and on. If you liked using your XP programs and the only thing wrong was that your laptop died, try using this netbook for a while. The I/O are limited, so no parallell or serial or anything like that. 3 USB ports are good. There is a little learning curve with the smaller screen size, but the gains on the software FAR OUTWEIGH any inconvenience you might feel while getting the screen adjusted to your liking. I was considering upgrading my hardrive, but I see that it's an internal thing with controller cable and not a simple screwdriver/plug in thing - so probably not.Read more ›

I've had my 1005hab since 2009 I think, and it's been great since day one!

It came with windows xp, which was OK, but it was a little clunky to navigate, and I felt that the OS made the already underpowered netbook even more sluggish. I went ahead and started using Linux about a year ago, haven't looked back. There's TONS of great Linux distributions and support catering to netbook users, so it's been easy and fun.

Aside from the OS that the unit ships with, I wish the battery lasted longer. I NEVER got the advertised 8 hours of battery life. The most I've gotten was around 3 hours, using 'power saving' mode, low intensity applications etc. So no, I don't think you should expect advertised battery life out of the 3-cell.

I use this thing mostly just for school and internet surfing on the couch. The screen is a great size, but of course the keyboard is a little cramped for typing. It works out OK though. I am surprised that after 3 years of taking this thing all over the place it still performs flawlessly--never showed any signs of physical wear & tear yet. Back and forth to school, room-to-room web surfing, a 3 month trip to Maui and Thailand. This thing has been my little cpu buddy :)

I did some research before I decided to purchase this Netbook. I read Asus is one of the leaders in Netbooks so it's a reliable brand. I compared a few other popular namebrand Netbooks to this one and for about $30 less it has the same if not better hardware. I've read a few people comment about Netbooks lacking a disc player, that shouldn't matter because it's not meant to be a laptop. The Netbook is for people on the go that don't like looking and typing on a tiny smart phone. Overall I think I made a good choice, the size doesn't feel too small and it can handle a lot of software without slowing down.

It's 2014 and I've had my 1005HAB since 2009. I've upgraded mine as far as I could and will wanted to share my thoughts. Originally it had XP, 1GB of RAM and the 3 cell battery (4hrs battery life). Currently I've installed 2GB of RAM, replaced the HDD with a 120gb SSD, 6 cell battery (6hrs battery life), and upgraded to Windows 7. With 2GB RAM and an SSD it's like a completely new computer. If you're still using yours with 1GB RAM I would highly suggest swapping to a 2GB stick as even that made a difference in use. Installing the SSD wasn't overly complicated thanks to a tutorial I found online, and I'd actually purchased mine used to save some money. If you're looking at buying this netbook and then upgrading it, I don't think it's worth it as you could buy something better for the price. If you are still enjoying yours but want it to be a little faster, an SSD and 2GB of RAM make a world of difference. Mine is booted up and ready to go in ~45 seconds. Linux Lite also runs smoothly on it if anyone was wondering.
